blocs. and that is women. we've heard so much about that. and hispanics. maria cardona should know about this. she's a democratic strategist. i realize you're an obama supporter. put ago side partisanship -- come on, maria, you can do it. >> i can do it. >> who will get the lion's share? start with women first. >> i think president obama will get the lion's share of women. but the magic number will depend on what that percentage is, don. as we know in 2008, president obama won the women's vote by 13 percentage points. he needs to get that, if not more, given the tightness of this race going tuesday. and i'll say the same thing about the latino vote. there's no question that the president will get the majority of the latino vote but mitt romney, in order to win doesn't need to get the majority of the latino vote. he needs to peel off just enough in order to make the percentages that he needs to make. >> okay. you mentioned 2008. let's talk a little bit more about 2008. mitt romney, do you think he's doing better among these two groups than john mccain did four years ago? >> he actually is

maria cardona and anna navarro would like to do. see life in the best light. outdoors, or in. transitions® lenses automatically filter just the right amount of light. so you see everything the way it's meant to be seen. maybe even a little better. vsp members can save on all authentic transitions lenses, including our new transitions vantage and transitions xtractive lenses. experience life well lit. ask which transitions adaptive lens is best for you. but they haven't experienced extra strength bayer advanced aspirin. in fact, in a recent survey, 95% of people who tried it agreed that it relieved their headache fast. visit today for a special trial offer. >>> welcome back, everyone. this is a live picture in mentor, ohio, where president obama is preparing to speak. we will bring you those remarks. supposed to happen just before noon eastern time. and you see the crowds there certainly gathering. we brought you the remarks of governor mitt romney earlier, speaking in new hampshire, so we're listening to the president coming up next hour. millions of
attack was not a spontaneous event but terrorist related. what will come of all of this? maria cardona, a democratic strategist. welcome to both of you. >> thank you. >> this is so complicated. ron, i don't know if you heard peter king, but general petraeus, he said as he testified before the house committee knew almost immediately that the attack in benghazi was terrorist related and not connected to that anti-muslim film. what does that say to you? >> well, it says that this issue is even more confusing than we thought. you had more than 20 intelligence reports that related the attack to that anti-muslim video that created worldwide outrage. now our former cia director, swren general petraeus, saying it was towelly a terrorist group and he knew and he had -- he knew about that. that's amazing because that was not what we were led to believe. that's why i think it's very important that the house and senate intelligence committee talk to him, get down in the weeds and start asking the important questions to find out what went wrong. where is the disconnect here? >> let's talk about tha
in those long early voting lines. joining me to talk ground game, maria cardona and john avlon. john, you wrote about this. in your piece, you noted that president obama had a massive advantage in terms of the number of field offices that he had opened up, particularly in places like ohio and florida. since you're in ohio, do you see the effects of that? it's one thing to have the offices. it's another thing to have those offices actually working. are you seeing the buses, the door knocks, the efforts of that ground game? >> absolutely, ashleigh. the headquarters are just one metric. and the real thing is that get out the vote effort. the last bus tour have been going to swing counties talking to the democrat and republican chairs. they are monitoring early voting in particular very intensely. they know which of their supporters have requested early ballots, trying to make sure the potential for what's called provisional ballots are as close as possible. there is a real focus. the phone calls, the door knocking, getting your vote out. this is all about ground game here in the battleground
as great as they appear? here she is, maria cardona. let's talk about your party, the president and the voters who elected him. president obama got more than 90% of the black vote. more than 70% of both asian and latinos. and he got 55% of the women vote. he also got a much smaller percentage, 39% of the overall white vote. what does president obama owe to any of these groups? or what should they expect from him? >> i think he owes a lot to this group. and i think he knows that. look, he's talked about trying to really push in the second term comprehensive immigration reform, which as you know was very disappointing to the latino community in the first four years when he wasn't able to get it done. i was one of those that was disappointed, understanding what he was up against which is why i think in the last couple of months he did the deferred action on the dream act which really helped politically. he also needs to focus on education, both for the latino community and the african-american community, the high school dropout rates are unacceptable. i think that's one of the plac
political dynasty. maria cardona joins us now along with rion salam. is jeb bush really going to run? >> well, it's not clear right now. but i'll say this. jeb bush is widely regarded as a tremendously effective political operator and having been a successful governor of florida. the truth is, that had his name been smith instead of bush, i think a lot of people would have been wondering why he didn't run this time around. i think he's a formidable competitor. >> you bring up a really good point here. if you're a democrat, you're saying sure, give us another bush to run against because we think the bush name is somewhat poison right now, maria, but, but, jeb bush is fluent in spanish. he's married to a woman who grew up in mexico. he has strong ties in a big state with a big latino vote. this is the kind of guy that could put democrats on the defensive. >> he would give us a whole lot more competition than mitt romney did, but that's not saying much. jeb bush absolutely i think is a tremendous leader when it comes to the issues that are important to latinos for example, immigration a
, john mccain? maria cardona and republican strategist ana navaro. do we have dana's microphone problem worked out? >> i'm here, carol. >> okay, good. you heard what he had to say. what do you think? >> reporter: i think this is going to be a real test of susan rice's diplomatic skills, that's what i think. these are three republican senators who, of course, have been among her harshest critics. i can tell you -- i'll play a sound bite. john mccain has definitely softened his rhetoric when it comes to susan rice but he has not when it comes to the administration and benghazi in general. listen to what he said this morning. >> do you think there's still unanswered questions? >> about 50 unanswered questions. including why the president would continue to say two weeks later that there was a hateful video that sparked a spontaneous demonstration, why the fbi investigators questioned people who were survivors who told them there was no demonstration and that was not -- we learned by ambassador rice and not learned by the president. >> do you put more blame on the president or miss rice? >>
's analyze what he said. we have our cnn contributor here, democratic strategist maria cardona and anna representative arresto, a republican strategist. good morning. >> good morning, carol. >> it was an uplifting speech. mitt romney certainly played the optimist. >> yeah, he's gotten the hang of it. i think these last speeches have been -- really hit the mark. got the crowd on their feet, enthusiastic. it's exactly what he needs to do these last few days of the campaign. get his base thufd, get them out to work. it's all about the ground game right now. we're only five days away. and -- but who is counting? >> oh, i am, believe me. maria, it was an optimistic speech, but there was not much new. perhaps the only new thing was the criticism of mr. obama's idea to create a secretary of business. >> yes, i agree, carol. and i agree with anna. it was an optimistic speech and he is so much better now at personalizing his speeches. the problem is, there is a big dissonance, carol, between what he's actually saying and what his policies would actually do. i was glad to hear he mentioned vetera
. >> joining us to talk about all of this, democratic strategist maria cardona, republican strategist alex castellanos and david gergen all with wolf in washington. good to see all of you. i want to start off reading two statements. this is from the republican leadership this morning. house speaker john boehner saying if there's a mandate, it is a mandate for both parties to find common ground and take steps together to help our economy grow and create jobs. then you have senate minority leader mitch mcconnell much less conciliatory here saying, the voters have not endorsed the failures or excesses of the president's first term. so alex, i'm going to start off with you. i'm going to put you on the hot seat. the question being, how do republicans and this administration put aside the differences and get to the serious business of governing in this country to get something done? >> how do they put it aside? pretty easily. we're headed for the edge of the cliff. and i think both sides understand that. two big problems, as you said, one is growth. and i think john boehner is right about that.
me now to talk more about this, cnn contributor and democratic strategist maria cardona and jason johnson. good morning to you both. >> good morning. >> good morning, carol. >> i know we have to talk about the fiscal cliff, but i'm dying to ask you about this scandal because it's all anyone's talking about. jason, can you -- it's a mess. >> i love the real housewives of the pentagon. that's what we're looking at right now. it's ridiculous, and the interesting thing is, no one has actually broken a law, but what i think it is, it's a reflection of the fact that we still have a culture in the military where people can behave in this way. where you can have these sort of mistresses and people have these backdoor relationships, et cetera, et cetera. i think the whole thing is more of a reflection problems in military culture than huge problem in national security. >> the women involved in these scandals, it astounds me, they're accomplished women, they're educated, they're not 20, right? they're old enough to know better. it's like what are you doing? >> yeah, no. absolutely, carol. i
contributor maria cardona and crystal wright. good morning to both of you. let's start with the numbers. we have talked so much about this election. here we are post election, president obama got the majority of women voters, 55% to 44%, but he didn't get all women. white women picked mitt romney to the tune of 56% to 42% but that was offset by minority women. in this case 96% of african-americans and 78% of latinos. maria, it seems like many people in both parties believed women would vote as a unified block but we didn't see that happen here. does that surprise you? >> no. i don't think anybody has ever said that women are a monolithic group and in fact this election proves it. but it does prove that across the board there are a lot of issues that are important to the majority of women and that's why you saw obama get the majority of women. and i think where republicans really made a huge miscalculation is on the issue of women's health and women's issues. turns out that the majority of women actually do want to have control over what happens to their bodies and it turns out that the majo
and democratic strategist maria cardona and republican strategist ron bon. if you can't come to some sort of agreement with republicans, cross the country and have voters do it for you. is that sort of it, maria? >> i think there's something to that, carol. and i think that it could be a very powerful tool. let's not forget that the people that our leaders, our elected leaders especially in washington, listen to the most are their own constituents, their own voters in their districts. so if there are obama supporters in the districts of the republican congressmen that president obama needs to convince in order to come to a balanced solution to the fiscal cliff, i think igniting and motivating and mobilizing his millions of supporters across the country is a pretty smart way of doing it. >> will it work, ron? >> well, you know, it's always a good idea for the president -- any president to be talking to voters. the question here is who should he be talking to. right now we don't have a deal yet in washington. we just were talking about the real very broad parameters of a framework. so the q
saying i'm st. nick and i approve this message. >> it's not long, i'm telling you. maria cardona, anna thank you for being with us. >>> some things get better with age. wine, cheese, and hollywood stars. we'll examine the latter in our series age against the machine. my doctor told me calcium is efficiently absorbed in small continuous amounts. citracal slow release continuously releases calcium plus d with efficient absorption in one daily dose. citracal slow release. >>> today celebrities are a little older, a little wiser. when it comes to the box office, they're certainly no worse for wear. nischelle turner takes a look at hollywood's booming stars. >> reporter: just try counting the stars born between 1946 and 1964. that's hollywood, baby. booming with entertainers who decades after they debuted are still delivering the goods to the 80 million americans aged 48 to 66 who first made them famous. >> the baby boomers did change everything. they created the me generation, the youth generation. but guess what? when you hold on to that power economically and in the press, you don't let
